Martin Sheen has admitted that he felt helpless during his son Charlie Sheen's public meltdown in 2011, which led to the actor being fired from his hit TV series Two and a Half Men.
"What he was going through at that time, we were powerless to do much," the Grace and Frankie actor told the Radio Times. "Except to pray for him and lift him up."

Let's settle the debate. Did we need a Spidey reboot five years after his last outing? Nope. This Spider-Man's solid script and capable effects simply aren't vibrant enough to warrant rehashing high-school shutterbug Peter Parker's life-altering spider bite. The performances, though – now those are extraordinary.
Start with the supporting cast. For gravitas, Martin Sheen and Sally Field play parental figures Uncle Ben and Aunt May, with Sheen giving Ben the fiery righteousness needed to orient Peter's moral compass in darker days.
Rhys Ifans adds nuanced edge as mad scientist Curt Connors, while Dennis Leary stiffens his spine as police captain George Stacy, out to nab a certain web-slinging vigilante.

Martin Sheen understands the "hell" son Charlie Sheen is going through.
He believes that Charlie, despite being 45, is still "emotionally" a child. "Because when you're addicted, you don't grow emotionally. So. when you get clean and sober you're starting at the moment you started using drugs or alcohol," the actor tells the U.K's Telegraph magazine. "You're emotionally crippled."
Sheen, 70, has been through similar difficulties, he concedes: "I know what hell he's living in. I've had psychotic episodes in public. One of them was on camera – the opening scene of Apocalypse Now. ... I know what Charlie is going through. And when you do something like that, that is out of control, that's the most difficult thing. You have to have courage."

Charlie Sheen has had a tumultuous year to say the least – but his father, legendary actor Martin Sheen, says he's making progress.
"He's doing well," the elder Sheen tells the U.K.'s Sky News of Charlie, 45. "We pray for him. If he had cancer, how would you treat him?"
"This disease of addiction is a form of cancer," Martin adds. "You have to have an equal measure of concern and love and lift him up."
